As a huge fan of The Threshold People's first album, I wondered how they'd possibly be able to top it. Well, I'm tickled to say that "Seven Legs from an Eight-legged Beast" is just as good, if not better, than their debut offering. I would have reviewed this sooner had I not been trapped in the Mauve Zone for the last four months or so, held in captivity by the Brain of Planet Arous, but I digress. The music on this album is lush and nocturnal, yet also has a great beat, meaning you can both dance to it AND (more importantly) devour someone's brain at the same time. Moving tributes to a vanishing style of mind. The music excites the senses, creepy-crawls up one's spine like zombie spiders which have been reanimated by atomic bomb testing at Yucca Flats. It evokes the glumhaven sensation of traveling through Nurnheim, the B-movie grindhouses of a 1950's Hell, a machine apocalypse (to wax Ballard). I think my favorite tracks are "The Blob," "The Werewolf's Cure," and the eerie, atmospheric conclusion. In layman's terms, I enjoyed it.

Quite lame sounding. The most straight forward aproach to the material you could have taken. Horror deserves more.

"Seven Legs" is remarkable. It both constantly invokes the thrills and chills of Halloween, hitting the ground running with 'Trail of Bones,' and also manages to weave interesting, exploratory soundscapes that are both abstract and narrative. "The Blob" particularly stands out, using cut-up bits of the film (of course) to paint the scene rather than lay it out play-by-play; it also manages to make the "PLOP!" sound, from the original theme, into something far more sinister than it began as.

Good stuff, boils and ghouls.

This is quite enjoyable, a fun album. I guess it is no secret that I am partial to music with samples from vintage horror and sci-fi. This year, instead of the usual fare, why not play this at your halloween party?
